To Travel is to Awaken
Stephan Marchal, founder of Himalayan Ecotourism, has been working with the local communities in India for about 20 years. A cooperative of 65 members, established by the natives of the Tirthan Valley and Stephan, organizes the treks in the GHNP area. HET has partnered with multiple local organizations to provide you with a surreal time in the mountains.
Discover the Tirthan Valley, Great Himalayan National Park, Ladakh, Zanskar, Spiti, Tibet and other offbeat Himalayan destinations with us. Join us for travel, treks, spiritual journeys, adventures, one-day hikes or volunteering.
Travel to us goes beyond means. We travel with you, in a way that is respectful to the local community and the environment. Our social enterprise model works on uplifting the families through women empowerment, education programmes and reforestation drives. We offset your travel carbon emissions by planting trees and are proud to be contributing towards sustainability in the Himalayas.
